Claims for Agent Orange Exposure

I talked to our County Veterans Service Officer today and she said to encourage EVERYONE who has EC and exposure to Agent Orange to file a claim. Even though your claim will initially more than likely be denied you should still file. The more people who file, the greater the chances of EC making it onto the presumptive list. It's just a matter of numbers. Unless you file, they don't know that you even have AO exposure and EC. The more who file, the more those numbers increase and the greater our odds become.
